Some flat beaters and dough hooks have a white coating that allows them to be washed in the dishwasher.
- Underneath the white coating is a burnished aluminum beater.
- The flat beater can become chipped for several reasons.
Bottom of flat beater chipping
If the bottom of your flat beater is chipping, it's possible that your beater is too high and it is hitting the bottom of the bowl and needs to be raised.
Your mixer is adjusted for optimum mixing at the factory, but through time and use it can change, and it should be readjusted.
